Ada Byron is rich and clever, but she longs to be free. Free to explore all the amazing ideas that come to her imagination, like flying mechanical horses and stories inspired by her travels. Free to find love and passion beyond the watchful gaze of her mother and governesses. And free to learn the full truth about her father, the notorious Lord Byron. Then Ada meets a man whose invention might just change the world - and he needs her visionary brilliance to bring it to life . . .

A wonderfully witty and poignant portrayal of the young life of Ada Lovelace, the 19th-century mathematician who is hailed as the world's first computer programmer.

Reviews for I, Ada: Ada Lovelace: Rebel. Genius. Visionary

Gray beautifully tells the part-fictionalised life of Ada ... vividly pictures Ada's gilded, isolated childhood -- Children's Book of the Week * The Times * A witty, poignant portrayal of the young life of the 19th century mathematician * The Bookseller * So atmospheric, totally absorbing, I LOVED it. Just like I loved Ada. You will too -- Maggie Harcourt An enjoyable read for its own sake this book would also be valuable in the classroom with its obvious curriculum links to STEAM subjects and to Ada Lovelace Day marked in October * Just Imagine *
